After a few months pool diving, me and  4 other guys, (sorry, no gals) got a boat and departed from Kuala Sedaka, Yan. After about 1 hour, we reached Pulau Songsong and stared diving. Visiblity was poor, as expected... I was the least experienced one there and so the guys was taking care of me... thanks guys... really appreciate it... Bro Fuad, Fadzil, Firdaus and Dikil made it possible... got some photos but my strobe was flooded before I can shoot underwater...

Good to see the hardcore dudes during their dives. Was is good there at Songsong?

What can a diver see over there? Depth? Current? What to expect and hazards? Visibility?

Share with us bro.

I've posted on you tube, but still processing since 10th July... lol...
maybe if you see the video you can see for yourself...
will try tu upload video again...

Fro, if for fun dives, I would rather do Perhentian. If possible, I want to do Tokong Laut again. The previous trip to that site was too short. Need to explore that site more further. I have not tried lang tengah, tendril and tioman too. Gonna add those into the list for next year.

Hello guys, i`m one of the guys who went diving with brother fauzie here.  :hello:

Personally i spotted a couple of  yellow seahorses there, lots of soft corals, anemones with of course those all the nemo clown fish, surprisingly a few angel fish as big as a human head, garoupas, lobsters, some nudis and some other common marine life.
The visibility was not bad actually (it`s west coast so can`t expect anything great compared to the east coast) B-) i can say around 6-7 meters and according to the locals there are times that the visibility is much much better then the day we went diving.  There currents were pretty mild, it could get rougher they say. We did shallow dives with the maximum of 10 meters depth with the average of 6-8 meters so your gas can last for hours :D .  One of the interesting facts is the locals kept telling me they've spotted few whale sharks there. Yes, i mean WHALE SHARK  :D .  I will be diving there again definitely because of the FACTOR hoping will spot one someday.

Hope this explanation will satisfy all the curiosities...

P/s: Sorry there's no photos from me. Sengkek diver [-( still trying to get a good deal to buy an u/w camera set.  :icon_tongue:
